  5. Grate the coconut and grind it in a mixer by adding water and squeeze it to extract milk. We need 2 cups of coconut milk to cook the rice. The coconut milk should be thin in consistency, we dont need thick milk. Drain the water from soaked rice and add the rice to the pan and fry for 2 minutes
